Life’s Lil Pleasures: A New Miniature Book By Evan Lorenzen
Colorado-based artist Evan Lorenzen just released a new book, but it’s not your average book – it’s no larger than one inch tall and features drawings smaller than your thumbnail. “Life’s Lil Pleasures,” his latest micro-book, features illustrations of all the little things that make life worth living.
As unbelievably tiny as this book is, Lorenzen is an old hand at creating micro books. The wonderful thing about his books is their haiku-like quality, where he manages to convey beautiful memories, strong emotions or deep and introspective thoughts with the use of just a few words.
The accompanying illustrations, especially given their size, are beautiful and impressive. Lorenzen works primarily with pencil and ink, though he does use watercolors as well.
